"Bureaucracy, Inefficiency, and Complicated"

Star Star Star Star Star
Former Employee - Senior Financial Controller
Former Employee - Senior Financial Controller

Pros

Nice cafeteria. As a contractor, I could come and go as necessary. Learned a lot and was able to stretch and grow job wise.

Cons

To much over-time for full-time employees concerning tasks that are in 'hurry up and wait status'. Wait long enough and these tasks will go away and morph into something else.

Advice to Management

Freddie has a long bureaucracy which leads to inefficiency. Your a complicated natured business. You need to become more effective and need to figure out your value add as well as initiate better management processes.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    They are always hirinig somebody, because people are always quitting.

    Cons

    - Overly rigid development process. Leaders unable to build software. Paper tigers. Many incompetent people protect their turf at the detriment of the company. Very Very political. The good smart developers have left and waht is left is the mediocre, go with the flow, types of develpoers that build software by committee and SDLC waterfall process. Last minute fire drills to complete ad hoc requests to statisfy questions by higher managers constantly interfact and distrorte the teams mission.

    Advice to Management

    organize by products and functional. Functional organization with matrixed employees is a disaster.

    or

    just give up and out source all software develpoment /design/testing/intergration to TaTa. Our existing management group is unable to handle software development, so just give up and let the Inidians do it.

    Pros

    Overall great organization because the company purpose was known and incorporated in every project. Good inclusion and diversity of staff at all levels, including sexual orientation.

    Cons

    Too much needed to be done and the focus on the details that make a difference were sometimes over looked. When layoffs occurred, some folks that did not deserve it, were let go. Like most companies, Politics are king, even over logic.

    Advice to Management

    Perform 360 degree reviews for all employees and act upon those findings. Value the talent that is there and reward accordingly.
